Critic Reviews for Romeo Is Bleeding
The far-fetched plotting eventually goes so far over the top that pic flirts with inventing a new genre of film noir camp.
It would be facile to say it substitutes style for content; actually, it substitutes stylishness for style.
Hilary Henkin's script isn't as smart as it thinks it is, and only Olin's breathtakingly excessive femme fatale hits the right note of campy panache.
Audience Reviews for Romeo Is Bleeding
Gary literally saves this movie from just being another crime and double-agent clusterfuck like so many noir films that tried too hard to be noir. Everyone has an angle and the jazz music ensues, I'll be damned if I don't like it though.
films like this give noir a bad name. oldman's voiceover is irritating, the script is all over the place and the final result is more sleazy than stylish. almost quit on it a couple times but it kept promising to get better...then went completely off the deep end. the only thing worth watching here is lena olin's psychotic lingerie-clad hitwoman. she's pretty great. what a waste
Olin is fantastic, but the movie is overcooked.
